Accommodation near Peter Mokaba Stadium

The Peter Mokaba Stadium is one of the 5 new stadiums built specifically for the FIFA World Cup in 2010. It is located in Polokwane, the capital city of Limpopo province, in the north of South Africa and cost R1 245 000 000 to construct. Polokwane is a roughly 3 hour drive from Johannesburg and the stadium is about 5 kilometres from Polokwane's city centre.

The stadium can accommodate about 46 000 people but is named after just 1. The late Peter Mokaba, the stadium's namesake, was a previous leader of the ANC youth league. It is built out of steel and concrete and has a flexible, aerodynamic roof which can accommodate the high wind speeds in summer. Aesthetically the stadium boasts a unique design inspired by one of Africa's most iconic trees, the baobab. At each corner of the stadium you will notice a short, cylindrical structure which is supposed to be reminiscent of the baobab's trunk.

The first time the stadium was put to use was in January 2010 for the Peter Mokaba Cup - a local competition between various football teams. The first international football match the stadium hosted was a friendly between South Africa and Guatemala. During the FIFA World Cup though the stadium was used intensely for matches and training, and for this reason the natural grass is reinforced with artificial grass fibres which essentially anchor the field to the ground, thus ensuring a stable, level surface to play on.

These days the stadium is used for football matches as well as rugby union games. It is the home turf of the Black Leopards FC football club.
